Miscellaneous Area Activities


Boat Tours

There are several companies that offer boat tours of Flathead Lake, but the best and most gracious is Questa Sailing Charters, run from the Flathead Lake Lodge south of Bigfork. The Questa is a 1929 Class Q racing sloop, lovingly restored. Phone 406-837-5569.



Parasailing over Flathead Lake can be an unforgettable experience for people of practically any physical condition. SkyFly’N Para Sail operates out of Marina Cay in Bigfork. Phone 406-837-2161.


Horseback Riding

If you feel that you can't leave Montana without riding a horse at least once, there are several places where you can go on escorted horse trips. High Country Trails (406-755-1158) is a highly regarded family operation south of Kalispell that offers trips of between one hour and half-day rides, including pony rides for children. Swan River Outfitters (406-886-3901), south of Swan Lake, offers both day trips and multi-day pack trips into the nearby Bob Marshall Wilderness. The latter is closer to our Swan Lake vacation rental property and has had terrific reviews.


Glacier Helicopter Tours

This company offers flights over Glacier, which can be exciting and allow one to see areas of the park miles off the road which are otherwise only seen by experienced hikers. Not inexpensive. Phone 406-837-4141.


Bicycle Rentals, phone 406-837-2453 Bike rentals for the entire family and can be rented for half day, full day or by the week.
